James Sherwood-Rogers, Tom Parker of QuestQuest, supplier in the Mortgage Valuation, HIP, Home Report and Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) markets, announced that founder and managing director Tom Parker is retiring from the business. 

James Sherwood-Rogers, MD, Landmark Legal & Financial, Quest’s parent company, is taking over the role, whilst Parker has accepted a non-executive director position at Quest. Having developed the business over 25 years, Tom sold Quest in 2007 to Landmark Information Group, which provides land and property search information, including digital mapping, environmental and planning reports for property professionals and consultants. 

Rogers adds, “We all wish Tom the very best for his retirement. His enthusiasm and eye for finding new ways to streamline the mortgage and property transaction process has helped lead the business to where it is today. We plan to continue driving the business forward to deliver yet more innovation and industry firsts to our customers. We have several product developments planned, which will be announced over the coming months, and I look forward to working with the management team at Quest to continue developing and delivering software innovations to the property sector.” 

Tom Parker: “Looking back, it is extremely satisfying to see how Quest has developed. Having originally started as a family business, it has grown to become a major player in the industry delivering the very latest technologies to support surveyors, mortgage lenders, panel managers, HIP providers, estate agents and conveyancers. I will continue as a non-executive director on the board at Quest and look forward to seeing the business continue to flourish under a new directorship. It’s been great fun and I have enjoyed working in this sector immensely.”
